The Division of Student Affairs highlights that a healthy mind, body, and spirit are foundations for student success. The Queen’s school of Graduate Studies and the Division of Student Affairs provides a range of programs and services to help you establish healthy habits to succeed academically and personally.

Mental Health & Wellbeing

The School of Graduate Studies has been provided with a Counsellor specifically for graduate students.  This coupled with the many services provided by Health Counselling & Disability Services, including a  Cross-Cultural Advisor, provides excellent support for you all.

The university recently unveiled the Queen’s-specific version of More Feet on the Ground, a bilingual educational website that helps people recognize, respond to and refer students experiencing mental health issues.  The online training program was developed by the Council of Ontario Universities (COU) in partnership with Brock University and the Ontario government’s Mental Health Innovation Fund

Fitness & Wellbeing

Other departments/groups on campus also have avenues to help your general health and wellbeing.  The Athletics & Recreation office has many programs and facilities available to you and is part of your student fees.  The SGPS also provides opportunities to socialise via group events or recreational pursuits.


If you haven't already heard, Queen's has a new Accessibility Hub website with all you need to know to make your time at Queen's an enjoyable one.  From accessible buildings to accommodations, this is the one stop shop for all things accessible.
